It may not be difficult to imagine who comes out on the losing end of a collision between a semi-truck and a traditional vehicle in Houston. Local drivers understand the need to share the road with large commercial vehicles, yet that does not erase the devastating potential that such vehicles present. Given the dangers posed by large trucks, those who operate them are typically extensively trained and also required to adhere to strict safety standards. A failure to adhere to such standards can produce devastating consequences

This fact was clearly evidenced in the case of a collision between a semi-truck and a small car in Fort Worth. Witnesses to the accident say that the car became pinned under the truck after the two vehicles collided on Interstate 35W. An investigation into the incident is ongoing, and authorities have yet to release who might be at fault. Sadly, the driver if the car died in the collision, and another person was reported to have sustained injuries (although it is not clear whether that person was the driver of the truck). 

Any number of factors can have a hand in leading to a collision between cars and semi-trucks. The drivers of such trucks can often become fatigued after having been on the road for several hours, or they may have been speeding to try and complete a route within an expected time frame. Whatever the reason, any type of reckless or careless action on their part may leave them (as well as the companies that they drive for) open to liability claims. Those hoping to make such a claim may first want to secure the services of an experienced attorney.
